It’s Summer! If you need a spot to write out your summer goals or plans, I have a printable for you! I sent a few options to my newsletter subscribers so they could vote on their favorite and this is the one they liked best! (Although I changed the title from Summer Goals to Summer Plans)
I originally couldn’t decide if I should title it Summer Goals or Summer Plans. I asked my subscribers about the term Goal vs Plans and PLANS won out! Although many who picked goals had great reasons for preferring the term goals. I like the term GOALS for various reasons and I want to make sure I am intentional about my time….but also don’t think that summer should be a completely goal-oriented season. We need plenty of rest, relaxation, and unplanned time too!
I personally don’t schedule too many activities into our summer. I may think ahead on a few things that I want to accomplish or enjoy, but don’t like a packed schedule. This morning my kiddos and I headed out for a leisurely morning in our favorite neighborhood in the cities.
I love to be able to get up, decide what we are in the mood for, and take off to do as we please! I know that there will be more scheduled into our summer when kiddos are older, so I will enjoy the freedom while I have it!
I hope you enjoy thinking through what you want your summer to look like! Here is a printable to help plan your summer. Summer Plans
Sorry about the term “things” in Things to Enjoy. I considered Food to Eat, Activities to Enjoy, and more…but I couldn’t figure out a phrase to include everything else. If you have a suggestion, feel free to leave it in the comments!
I created a few more printables for you. These scripture LOVE printables are perfect for Valentine’s Day!
They include four different Bible Passages about love. If your child is handing out valentines, print on card stock and cut the four sections. Include candy, a pencil, box of crayons, stickers, chapstick, Play-Doh or whatever goodie your child is excited to give out.
Don’t only use them on Valentine’s Day! They are the perfect note to put in your child’s lunchbox. A little reminder of God’s love.
I hope your child enjoys the Valentine’s Day Word Search Printables!
Two years ago I made Scripture Printables that include four different Bible Passages about love. If your child is handing out valentines, print on card stock and cut the four sections. Include candy, a pencil, box of crayons, stickers, chapstick, Play-Doh or whatever goodie your child is excited to give out. Print: Valentine Love Verse Printable

I often hear about people who have a gratitude journal or write down a list of what they are thankful for each evening. It’s important to always be thankful, but I have never taken the time to write down a list. I believe that we are to have a thankful heart and that we need to focus on the many blessings given by our Savior.
My November Mini Goal: Be Thankful and Look for Joyful Moments. Record the Moments in my Mom’s One Line a Day book each day
While I was originally going to try keeping a gratitude journal in November, I decided to do a variation of it. I have the Mom’s One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book and don’t write in it as consistently as I would like. The book includes one page for every day of the year and on each page it has room for 5 different years. I use the book to write in some of my daughters’ milestones but also like to write down things they say or do. I use it to write down memories and enjoy looking back at it. It’s helpful to write things down as I know I would otherwise forget much of what they say and do!
I am so grateful for my girls and so I’m going to try and write in the book consistently in November. Because I will be in the fog of life with a newborn, it will help me to step back and look for the joyous moments in my days.

I would love to have you join the 12 Mini Goals Challenge. Sign up for my mailing list if you want to be e-mailed the challenge each month. If we get to a month where the goal doesn’t fit into your life, you can always tweak it to be a mini goal that works for you.
